Happy brand new baby year. The old man of 2010 seems quite glad to have passed on to better things.

So. Mrs. T did manage to complete her TY-notes in time to celebrate the new year with Mr. T.

New Year’s Eve. We had a delightful afternoon, watching the first Lord of the Rings (MEMORIES!). Then enjoyed a country Cajun dinner of pork chops, collard greens, cucumber salad and roasted potato sliders (another post will detail my recipes).

New Year’s Day. We woke up early, and with coffee in hand, I attacked the kitchen. I absolutely HAD TO domain the bakers rack. It had started having a mind of its own — and I needed to go through and reorganize (make a bit of room for some new treats Mr. T got me for Christmas). That afternoon we headed over to a dear friends New Year’s Day Fete. I just couldn’t go empty handed, so I scurried up to the Green Room and created these little darling wreaths out of simple materials.

1. Steal 3 little wreaths from Christmas Tree (by little I mean, 3″ in diameter)
2. Plug in [NEW] Mini Hot Glue Gun
3. Snip felt into flowers & bows
4. Glue bow and attach with feathers to wreath 1
5. Glue flowers and attach to wreath 2
6. Glue flowers and mini-gems to wreath 3
7. Admire and adore 🙂

Wreaths tucked on a little bit of paperboard with pink striped wrap beneath.

Close ups of each (just for fun). My favorite was the feather one. SO. Presh 🙂

So. I brought these along, wrapped in brown paper looking oh so cute. As I take down the tree today, I intend to transform each of the little wreaths into sweet winter cheery creations. So excited for what feathers, gems and a bit of glue will do for them!
